Kikizo interviews Chris Lewis, Vice President, Home Entertainment, Microsoft EMEA (EMEA is Europe as well as Middle East and Africa, hence EMEA or "emmear").
This was done shortly after the X06 (Microsoft's game announcement event now discontinued), nearly a year after the Xbox 360's launch. The questions all focus, of course, on the Xbox 360, the European and especially UK market. There are also some questions about promises, support and the next generation. See the segments list for full information on the questions.
The original video source is available at Kikizo. Thanks to Kikizo for the source.
